Dream come true!
"Oh my....absolutely wonderful, perfect, and all you could ever ask for in staying almost in the beach instead of on. Door to the beach is more than a true description for sure. Door to pure happiness, peace, and joy for the beach goer and sun God or Goddess. The cottage is immaculate and stocked for all needs rather in restroom or kitchen. The master bed was fantastic as was the temperature and fans in the home after coming in from the heat. Bikes, washer and dryer, beach toys for the kids, and on and on. Manatee within first 30 minutes being there and in the ocean. Dolphins, many, saw daily. And the turtles!!!! Saw one nesting one night and even go to see the STOP ladies assisting a nest that had already hatched. The beach is so secluded in a way as folks consider this part of the beach, Florida, and area, "old Florida." Just like the good old days before all the commercial stuff. None of that here. Just a wonderful vacation for our family. I was sad to leave and am anxious already to return. Well worth the stay as all of the comforts are more than you could hope for and it's just a wonderful rental thanks to Neal!!!!"

"I have stayed here several times over the last 2 1/2 years. I really enjoy my stays here. The cottages are very clean and well furnished and close to all conveniences. The owner and manager are great people to deal with. I would recommend this place to anyone."

"We decided to make a trip to Florida at the very last minute over 4th of July weekend. Since July is not peak season, I had my pick of many rentals. We had never rented a house before, so I was a little nervous about how everything would go. I called the number listed at about 9:00 at night thinking I would leave a message, but the owner answered. We chatted for about 20 minutes and I knew this was the place for us. Darlene went above and beyond to make sure our family (2 adults and 2 kids) would be comfortable and have everything we could possibly need. We rented the upstairs house (Capt. Quarters) and it was beautiful. We had a nice view of the Gulf from our porch, and the beach was only 100 or so steps away. Perfect for letting the boys walk back to the house by themselves to grab some of the many beach toys Darlene provided. Darlene made the boys feel so special, and made us all feel like family. The area never felt crowded, the beach was beautiful, and there was lots to do in the area. My boys came home with 15+ baggies full of shark teeth and other prehistoric finds from the beach. We all agreed this was our favorite vacation so far, and can not wait to visit again and see Darlene. The only bad part was leaving :("

"We stayed 2 weeks at this cottage, and loved it. It was very clean and quiet. The location was perfect. We were minutes from our favorite beach- Blind Pass Beach. We spent several evenings at the "private beach" watching the sunset. The owners were great to work with, from the initial booking to check out. If you are looking for a place with a lot of room, this isn't for you, but if your looking for a clean and cozy get away, this is your place. We loved it- close to 4 beaches, shopping, and great restaurants. We
will be going back next year!"
